Ecomondo is the leading Euro-Mediterranean area green and circular economy expo that brings together all sectors of the circular economy in a single platform. This is the reason why REINWASTE partners decided to be in Rimini from 6 to 9 November 2018.

REINWASTE partners met in Ecomondo so as to make the point concerning project activities, exchange views and opinions within the larger GREEN GROWTH Community of the Interreg Med programme, extend the followers audience of the project.

On November 6, project partners met during the workshop organized by Federalimentare dedicated to REINWASTE, that included a project presentation and an interesting speech about the European rules concerning packaging for the agrifood sector, which is a very sensitive issue since it touches themes like tagging and traceability and also environmental impact. The workshop closed with a presentation by COOPBOX, a highly specialized company of the packaging sector for agrifood from Emilia-Romagna, that introduced very innovative and sustainable materials they developed and talked about the GLOPACK project, an H2020 action that concerns the creation of a software aimed at helping companies in choosing the best available material for the packaging of their products in terms of performances and sustainability. This means that thanks to GLOPACK, companies will be able to improve their environmental performances by reducing the amount of plastic waste produced, thus meeting the REINWASTE goals at the same time.

Networking moments took place at the Green Growth area, where partners from different MED projects had the opportunity to meet and explore new synergies aimed at maximize results impact.
